Dear Folks

Long time, no hear you think!

The new news is I have had the pleasure of working with some wonderful professional actors at Guild House, the actors’ union head office in a workshop I led on April 18th.

The text was my screenplay, The Genius and the Rebel, that sheds light on history’s lost story and the homophobic, mainly white England of 1910.  The substance of the screenplay is that the movers and shakers of the time, Arthur Ransome and the publisher Martin Secker challenged this established world.

Both were determined to have Wilde, imprisoned for homosexual practices fifteen years earlier acknowledged as the genius he was by the UK literati.

There was a pleasing range of ages and ethnicity in the workshop, which yielded pleasingly unexpected and thought-provoking feedback.

Thank you so much everyone!
